So here we are again with another set of song recommendations! Go below the cut for more:
While Block B was bombarded with praise since the introduction of its members, I initially did not take a particular interest in them and their debut song, “Freeze!” However, I heard endless streams of praise for Zico, and figured that I should check him and Block B out. Well, I must admit, this group is talented and this song (sung by the “original” members) is pretty good for a remake.
Epik High – Run
아무리 도망쳐 봐도 벗어날 수 없어 / No matter how much I run, I can’t escape
Epik High’s ability to put meaningful lyrics with non-generic yet catchy music is really something that makes them stand out in the busy K-Pop scene even when they’re on hiatus. If you haven’t heard this song yet, check it out, because it is definitely worth more than your five minutes.
You can’t go wrong with the three beautiful, melodic voices that formed one of the greatest K-Pop groups of all time. I love this song- the lyrics are truly heartfelt as JYJ’s Jaejoong wrote this song himself and I think that it’ll be difficult to get this song or its meaning out of your head once you’ve given it a listen.
I initially did not like Infinite much despite all the hype gathered around them when they debuted a year ago (or was it two?). However, they’re slowly getting my attention. I found this song quite pleasing too although I’m not sure if I really like the lyrics. Infinite sings of treating a girl better, but then they later speak of holding the girl they like captive in this “sad paradise,” an oxymoron that I don’t understand.
